USB 3.0 transfer file between external HDD only 644 kB/s :(

I was having problem with chkdsk/r for seagate backup plus after cyclic redundancy error, taking forever. So I took everybody's advised to transfer all files asap and not bother trying to continue chkdsk/r (which was running for over 72 hrs and only stuck at 10 percent, fixing too many bad clusters). As I was trying to transfer the files, I thought it would be wise not to try to transfer all at once, so the first clump went okay (had trouble with corel installation folder), second clump went fast, third clump at present had been running... omg.... since yesterday. I moved adapter to USB 2.0, at first it was fast but significantly slowing down. Then I had to restart again since installing Seatools apparently disconnected the file transfer from the broken seagate backup plus to the not broken freeagent go flex. Upon restart, as usual started off good, then slowing down significantly for few hrs, then suddenly pick up to over 50 percent transferred, then now it's slowing down again to 644 kB/s :( I assumed this problem maybe related to seagate backup plus maybe on the verge of death and some files cannot be transferred because it cannot be read by freeagent and I just have to try to move as many files as I can :( It is still transferring, but so slow just to transfer 33.3Gb data, I have 12.3 Gb left :( Am I right for assuming this maybe related to the seagate HDD pm ? USB driver is up to date. I'm working tonight so if you don't see me responding to your kind responds right away it is not because I don't appreciate it (^^) but I will try to respond and try any suggestions as soon as I get off work tomorrow morning. thanks in advance.

    Yes, it sounds like the data you're trying to access is where your HDD is damaged thus taking that long to be able to copy, from those 12.3GB left see what's the most critical info and start with.

    Thank you. I just have to be patient... 10.3 GB left and 292 kB/s transfer speed.... hopefully the HDD doesnt die on me in the process
